Match in Photos: Toronto FC v Chicago Fire (April 21, 2017)

I circled the calendar when Major League Soccer announced that Bastian Schweinsteiger was going to the Chicago Fire. Though we didn't see as much action as I would have liked it was great seeing a player that I've been watching for over 10 years at my home stadium in Toronto.
